Just wanted to thank you for the recommendation of Pied de Cochon. We loved the homey artisan style cooking and the foie gras appetiser with goat cheese and carmelised apples was spectacular. We passed on the foie gras with poutine, which the server assured us tasted better than it sounded-maybe next time.
Incidentally, we stayed at a lovely boutique hotel, le Germaine, that gave us a competitive rate when we asked for it. It includes breakfast and other perks like free cappucinos any time. It is also centrally located on Drummond near the train station.
